Super Slow-mo camera
The Galaxy S9's camera can slow down time. Super Slow-mo captures 0.2 second video segments, each with an ultra clear resolution of 1280 x 720. Use Auto mode to activate Motion Detect and capture the moment as soon as a moving subject enters the screen. Or use Manual mode and tap the Super Slow-mo button to capture each video segment. Play your videos back and see all the details that flew by or even save them as the phone's wallpaper.
The Galaxy S9 Dual Aperture lens works like the iris of the human eye, so no matter where you are, you're able to capture the moment in very low light or super bright conditions.
You as an emoji
The camera can turn you into your very own 3D emoji so you stand out from everyone else. Liven up your messages by including your personalised AR emoji and sharing up to 18 different reactions on social media or direct to friends.
Stereo surround sound
Treat your ears to an upgrade. The Galaxy S9's built-in stereo speakers are tuned by AKG, so you’ll get richer sound without distortion, and thrilling Dolby Atmos surround takes you into your music like never before. Make the sound 1.4 times louder (compared to the S8) and enjoy powerful, reinforced bass.
Immersive infinity display
The rounded corner Infinity Display and symmetrical metal sides blend effortlessly for a seamless look, offering a fully immersive visual experience thanks to its ultra-thin bezel and 18.5:9 ratio display. It offers amazing visibility even in direct sunlight, so you won’t miss a thing.
Way more than a PA in your pocket, use Bixby Voice to help you control apps, text friends, set reminders and much more. Just ask. And when you need help with translation, Bixby Vision can translate the world around you*.
The Galaxy S9's intelligent scanner (iris & face) provides excellent protection for your personal information without adding any inconvenience.
